End of Canon EOS 7D Mark III Speculations

Canon EOS 7D Mark III Wish List for Birds in Flight Photography / Image Copyright: Vernon Chalmers Cape Town
Canon 7D Mark II  / 400mm Lens  :  Image: Vernon Chalmers
Canon EOS R7 Anticipated to be Successor for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II was released on 15 September 2014 as the replacement for the Canon EOS 7D that was released on 1 September 2009. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Canon EOS R7 Update:
The future of a "Canon EOS 7D Mark III" may now be within the EOS R System. After field testing the Canon EOS R6 for Canon South Africa I believe a possible future Canon EOS R7 may just be the like-for-like sort of mirrorless body replacement for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

End of Life for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II?
We may be edging ever closer towards the end of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II's life cycle and with current (competitive) advancements in the APS-C DSLR and Mirrorless camera market showing the real age of the EOS 7D Mark II's features and specifications. I still believe that the Canon EOS 7D Mark II AF System, when paired with a fast lens, is still very capable (when measured against i.e. the more advanced / feature-rich AF System of the Canon EOS R6).

(My) Birds in Flight Photography Paradigm shifting towards a Possible Canon EOS R7?
I have used the Canon EOS 7D Mark II almost exclusively for Birds in Flight photography (throughout its life cycle). I am still an avid user of this extremely capable Canon APS-C (1.6x Crop Factor) DSLR body for birds in flight / fast action photography. Like many current (and previous) Canon EOS 7D Mark II photographers I'm eagerly awaiting the possible 2022 announcement of an APS-C Mirrorless Canon EOS R7. 

Canon Dual Pixel CMOS AF II System
If the Autofocus (AF) System in a 'possible new Canon EOS R7' is going to be anything like that of the Dual Pixel CMOS AF II System deployed in the Canon EOS R6 / R5 I will definitely be interested. There are a good variety of quality RF (L) lenses that should pair well with a 'future' Canon EOS R7. For starters, I will keep using my EF 400mm f/5.6L USM lens (with the current EF - RF Mount Adapter), should it be compatible. 

Future of the Canon EOS 7D Mark III?
After the launch of the Canon EOS 90D there are more and more speculation and rumor that we will not see the Canon EOS 7D Mark III as Canon's future high-speed action APS-C camera, but it will be positioned as a mirrorless Canon EOS R7) body possibly as an APS-C EOS R body.

It will be a sad reality for many Canon EOS 7D Mark II photographers. Where some will embrace the modern mirrorless technology many other would probably keep their current EOS 7D Mark II's for longer or look for an alternative Canon EOS DSLR i.e. the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II or possibly the new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III 

Current Canon EOS 7D Mark II for Birds in Flight Photography
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is in my opinion a formidable APS-C DSLR with an advanced AF system just about straight out of the Canon EOS-1D X / Canon EOS 5D Mark III professional bodies. The 65-point AF system and the 1.6 crop sensor advantages were part of my decision-making for adding the Canon EOS 7D Mark II to my existing gear.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II / EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens First Impressions Article

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Long Term Use / Experience >>

I use the Canon EOS 7D Mark II exclusively and very frequently for Birds in Flight Photography paired with the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM lens (at Woodbridge Island, Cape Town). I'm quite happy with this pairing and the only in-the-near-future upgrade that I'm considering is the replacement of my current 400mm lens with the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens.

I wrote the following about future expectations of a rumored Canon EOS 7D Mark III in June 2017

Canon 7D Mark II  / 400mm Lens  :  Image: Vernon Chalmers
What I like most about the Canon EOS 7D Mark II
Before upgrading to the Canon EOS 7D Mark II I was quite satisfied capturing Birds in Flight with my Canon EOS 70D (which I still use) and if it was not for the Birds in Flight workshops I present would probably have stayed with the Canon EOS 70D for a year or so longer.

I had a brief opportunity to test a Canon EOS 7D Mark II / EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens pairing before upgrading to my own Canon EOS 7D Mark II. When comparing the Canon EOS 7D Mark II directly to the Canon EOS 70D I appreciate the following features the most: 
  • Advanced AF system with multi-controller support
  • Wide Zone AF option for erratic and small birds
  • 10 frames per second continuous shooting
  • Deeper buffer for RAW shooting
  • Slightly better ISO noise improvement
  • CF Card / Dual memory card slots

Please Note
: This article is not a Canon EOS 7D Mark III rumor, but as a current user of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II I have certain expectations (wish list) of possible specifications and features of a Canon EOS 7D Mark III DSLR camera should there be such a camera.


Canon EOS 7D Mark III Wish List for Birds in Flight Photography / Image Copyright: Vernon Chalmers Cape Town
Canon 7D Mark II  / 400mm Lens  :  Image: Vernon Chalmers
Canon EOS 7D Mark III Wish List / Requirements
Different Canon EOS 7D Mark II Birds in Flight photographers users will probably list all sorts of required / improved functionality that they would like to see added to a possible Canon EOS 7D Mark III - especially now after the early 2016 release of the Canon EOS 80D and the more recently released Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

My Canon EOS 7D Mark III Wish List is based on personal preferences and will most likely be quite different for many current Canon EOS 7D mark II photographers around the world.

Other photographers may want to see 4K video, faster frame rate and a few other enhancements - below is my Canon EOS 7D Mark III wish list for my own Birds in Flight photography. 

I personally have no issues with the Canon EOS 7D Mark II's battery life,10 fps or AF / AI Servo tracking performance. 

My Canon EOS 7D Mark III Wish List Specifications (compared to Canon EOS 7D Mark II)
  • 24 - 28 Megapixel Sensor (20.2 MP) 
  • Dual DIGIC 8 Image Processors (Dual DIGIC 6) 
  • ISO 100 - 32000 (ISO 100-16000) 
  • AI Servo AF III+ Focusing / Tracking System (AI Servo AF III) 
  • 65-point AF system with 25+ AF points at f/8 (65-points / limited AF point coverage at f/8) 
  • Broader AF Point spread across the sensor 
  • Deeper Buffer / 40 - 50 RAW for continuous shooting (31 RAW) 
  • Wi-Fi / NFC and Bluetooth (none) 
  • CFast & SD Card Slots (CF & SD Card slots) 
  • 3.2" LCD touch screen (3.0" LCD non-touch screen)

Read / Rumor: Canon EOS 7D Mark III Coming with Dual Digic 8 Image Processors

New Canon EOS 7D Mark III Rumors & Announcement Updates
New Canon EOS 7D Mark III Rumors & Announcement Updates

I'm in no real hurry for adding a possible Canon EOS 7D Mark III to my Birds in Flight Photography gear - the possibility is very exiting, but before then I would more than likely replace my Canon EOS 6D with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and wait for the new Canon EOS APS-C flagship announcement (possibly later in 2018).

More and more respected online 'rumour sources’ are publishing the possible launch / release of a Canon EOS R7 during Q4 2022.

2022 could therefore be the year that Canon APS-C (Crop) body owners get the highly anticipated EOS R 'upgrade option' for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II.
